Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 12, 2021

A day before rioters stormed Congress, an FBI office in Virginia issued an explicit internal warning that extremists were preparing to travel to Washington to commit violence and "war," according to an internal document reviewed by The Washington Post that contradicts a senior official's declaration the bureau had no intelligence indicating anyone at last week's pro-Trump protest planned to do harm.

A situational information report approved for release the day before the U.S. Capitol riot painted a dire portrait of dangerous plans, including individuals sharing a map of the complex's tunnels, and possible rally points for would-be conspirators to meet up in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and South Carolina and head in groups to Washington.

"As of 5 January 2021, FBI Norfolk received information indicating calls for violence in response to unlawful lockdowns' to begin on 6 January 2021 in Washington. D.C.," the document says. "An online thread discussed specific calls for violence to include stating Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Pantifa slave soldiers being spilled. Get violent. Stop calling this a march, or rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die. NOTHING else will achieve this goal."

An FBI official familiar with the document said that within 45 minutes of learning about the alarming online conversation, the Norfolk FBI office wrote the report and shared it with others within the bureau. It was not immediately clear how many law enforcement agencies outside the FBI were told, but the information was briefed to FBI officials at the bureau's Washington field office the day before the attack, this official said.

This is no surprise whatsoever. The questions remaining are to the FBI leadership's responsibility in failing to report this information with urgency to all relevant security forces available to defend the Capitol last Wednesday - which obviously wasn't done.

Perhaps incompetence played a part here. But people long wondered why Trump made certain last minute appointments at the Pentagon and other places. I think that when we finally follow each string to this mess the word "traitor" just won't seem like near enough.

I remember when Boaz used to say things like if Trump weakens national security he'd lose his support. LOL! No one believe him when he said it.

... A recent article from CNBC has uncovered ties between America First Policies, McMahon's advocacy organization, and the DC riots....

The America First Policies organization is being called out for its ties to the Capitol Hill riot. The organization is what some people are calling a "Dark Money Group," meaning they do not have to disclose information about their donors.

America First Priorities publicly disclosed that they donated $25,000 to "Women for America First". It was also noted that this organization was largely responsible for organizing the Washington, DC riot on January 6th....

The sources of the %500,000 Alex Jones raised for the Jan 6th rally need to be ID'd.

Interesting press conference just now with the FBI and D.C. US Attorney.

They're ID-ing and going after everyone who stormed the Capitol.

"We'll be knocking on your door."

Will be viewed, no doubt, as evidence that government is oppressing them.

Isn't this lovely?

Phone numbers belonging to two of Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-TX) offices appeared to be listed as contact information in a note found in a truck belonging to Lonnie Coffman, who has been indicted for allegedly carrying unregistered firearms and 11 Molotov cocktails in that same vehicle during the pro-Trump insurrection last week.

New court documents that include photos of the truck and the items found inside the vehicle show a Motel 6 magazine with "Senator Ted Cruz" handwritten on the back next to two phone numbers. When called by TPM, the numbers connect to Cruz's offices in D.C. and Central Texas.

I guess when trump told the proud boys to stand down and stand by, he was talking to the ones in the security and police forces.

Boaz is one of the most disturbed cowards on this blog.

He idolizes nethanderalism.
